I finally finished my Women in the Middle East book review
Its finally done! I read this beautiful, informative book, Women in the Middle East; Tradition and Change by Ramsy M. Harik and Elsa Marston, and I had to write a book review of it for my final project in my Ethics class. It is truly eye opening, I admit, I had my racist Americanized misconceptions of the Middle East and how it treated its women, and now I can honestly say I have a new found respect for the hardships they face and a much better understanding of the discrimination they go through. This is definitely a subject I want to research further.
I highly suggest others read this book and shed their ignorance about other cultures.
I submitted a picture to International Scarves In Solidarity 2013. It was unplanned, a lil blurry, and some how I look higher than a kite, but I am glad I was able to stand in solidarity with my sisters. Feminism is nothing without inclusiveness and a woman’s right to choose. Stay strong, my beautiful Muslim sisters!
